WHAT IS SHOTOKAN KARATE?


SHOTOKAN KARATE IS A TRADITIONAL JAPANESE MARTIAL ART.



​KARATE  is a martial art meaning, "empty hand".  The word "do" means, "the way or path of karate".  Karate-Do means, "The Way of Karate".  




SHOTOKAN KARATE consists of three parts, including, kihon (basic techniques), kata (forms), and kumite (sparring).  SHOTOKAN has long, deep stances that create powerful movements and are stable when executing techniques.  This type of karate utilizes power, speed, and strength.  




An important key element to SHOTOKAN that sets it apart from the other karate styles is the DOJO-KUN and NIJU-KUN.  Visit our page dedicated to these principles to learn more.
